Top 10 Popular Frozen Foods

There has been a growing trend over the past couple of years towards buying frozen food products by consumers. Some of the reasons for this is that the quality and variety of frozen foods has improved vastly.

The aspect of convenience is a major contributor too as the average consumer has less time to do daily shopping runs at the supermarket and so ready-made food options are strongly regarded.

Frozen food products also contain little to no preservatives as the storage of these goods under low temperature ensures that they have a desirable shelf-life without fear of contamination from bacteria.


1. Frozen Pizzas

Everyone is familiar with the Frozen Pizza and this product has been in the market for a long time now. From the humble Margherita to the Regina and Hawaiian Pizza’s, there are frozen pizzas to suit everyone’s desires.


2. Frozen Fries

Whether oven baked or deep-fried, you no longer have to spend your time peeling potatoes as there are countless brands of frozen fries on the market. There are original fries, the thin variety and even crinkle-cut fries too.


3. Fish Fingers

Who can forget growing up with a plate of crumbed fish fingers and some ketchup to dip those tasty marvels in? The fish finger is a traditional frozen food and remains still, a very popular to-buy frozen item by consumers.


4. Pasta

Everyone enjoys a good Italian-style pasta every now and again, but quite often we simply don’t have the time or energy to make it and restaurants can be pricey. Frozen pastas have increased in popularity and include such options as Spaghetti Bolognaise, Tagliatelle Alfredo and Lasagne.


5. Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are a favorite among many, but few have the know-how to make the crispy and delicious kind that you might find in restaurants. Owing to this, the frozen chicken nugget has become a popular buy among consumers.


6. Pies

No longer do you have to be a skilled baker to make your own pies at home. Frozen pies are among the most common of items in many a consumer’s deep-freeze. The variety nowadays is immense, but most common types are chicken, steak and spinach/feta.


7. Buffalo Wings

Those tiny chicken wings coated in sweet and spicy BBQ sauce are popular by consumers and traditionally you could only get your hands on these things at restaurants. Nowadays you can get your fingers sticky at home and use them as great additions to dinner parties too.


8. Curry

Everyone loves a spicy curry during the winter but unless you are an Indian who is well versed in the making of curry, you may find it difficult producing a proper curry dish. Pre-made frozen curries are of higher quality and made with traditional Indian recipes for a real taste of India.


9. Stews & Casseroles

A slow-cooked Tomato Bredie or delicious lamb and vegetable casseroles can be easily bought nowadays as already-made frozen products. Even the busy corporate executive can come home and enjoy a “home-cooked” meal in just a few minutes.


10. Oven Bakes

Whether you enjoy a cheesy Potato-bake or a chicken-broccoli bake with that creamy and crispy layer on top, there is a large variety of oven bakes that can easily be popped into the oven.

    Here in New Orleans I really enjoy Zatarain’s “Blackened Chicken with Yellow Rice” – it’s definitely one of the best microwavable frozen meals on the shelf.

    A big reason is that people take these to work and have them for lunch. Still cheaper than McDonalds

    The reason people don’t cook nuggets at home is because nuggets are made of pink slime and no one has a can of pink slime hanging around.
